Kellogg’s: Not too gr-r-reat!

Featured image John proposed that readers boycott Kellogg in response to the company’s announcement that it is pulling its advertising from Breitbart. Many readers have responded with messages to Kellogg’s on which we have been copied. I particularly enjoyed this one, which I thought other readers might find of interest as well: I read Mr. Hinderaker’s excellent post about Kellogg pulling its advertising from Breitbart.com. You may remember when the company refused »

Boycott Frosted Flakes!

Featured image Liberal bullies are trying to pressure advertisers into boycotting Breitbart.com, one of the most popular conservative sites on the internet. Unfortunately, they are having considerable success. As you probably know, Breitbart.com was founded by Andrew Breitbart and has been run by Steve Bannon following Andrew’s tragically premature death. Breitbart.com was an early and enthusiastic backer of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, and Bannon became a close adviser to Trump. He is »

#TrudeauEulogies: A selection

Featured image Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s eulogy of Fidel Castro illustrates the repulsive relativism of the left. Trudeau is proud of the eulogy. He seeks to publicize it. Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be liberals. They become cretins. This is the way it ends: It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President. Fidel Castro was a larger than life »

Recount Freakout [with comment by Paul]

Featured image If you’re a liberal, anything is better than admitting that you lost. So now, just weeks after cautioning Donald Trump’s supporters that they had better accept the results of the election (unlike the Democrats in 2000 and 2004), Democrats led by Jill Stein are demanding recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Left-wingers have donated millions of dollars, and the Hillary Clinton campaign has announced that it will participate in Stein’s »

Only the wrong survive [With Comment by John]

Featured image The peaceful death of the brutal Communist butcher and dictator at the ripe old age of 90 cannot help but trouble those of us who would like to believe in the hand of providence in history. Celebrated by the left, by the mainstream media (but then I repeat myself) and by fools all over the world, Castro was a truly evil tyrant. His death couldn’t come too soon. It came »

Medical Journal Freakout

Featured image The Lancet, founded in 1823, is one of the world’s leading medical journals. Like pretty much all institutions, it has been taken over by the Left, and in recent years has not hesitated to opine on politics as well as medicine. Still, the journal’s editorial titled President Trump is pretty jarring. It begins by quoting from a speech by one David Stuckler at the European Public Health Conference in Vienna, »

Fashion Freakout

Featured image Someone untutored in the ways of liberals might expect the fashion world to be excited about the prospect of Melania Trump as First Lady. Mrs. Trump is a former model, and as a bonus, she is an actual immigrant at a time when immigrants are supposed to be popular on the left. I am being facetious, of course: the Clintons may have attended Donald and Melania’s wedding, but that was »

Spice Wars

Featured image I don’t pay a lot of attention to spices, but my wife, being a terrific cook, does. So she pointed out that following the election, a Wisconsin-based spice company called Penzeys has announced that it only wants customers from one side of the aisle: “The open embrace of racism by the Republican Party in this election is now unleashing a wave of ugliness unseen in this country for decades,” Bill »

Liberals Are Losing Their Minds

Featured image A couple days ago I wandered into the Berkeley Bowl Market, which is where upscale hippiedom of Berkeley shops for its fair-trade kale and such. Oh, my! The experience does not disappoint. The people watching was even better than the Whole Foods in Boulder, which was the size of a Home Depot. One of these days I’ll take a hidden video camera for some candid shots. Maybe I’ll wear a »

Memo to Trump: Stop Disavowing!

Featured image Today Donald Trump held an on-the-record meeting with the New York Times. Despite the meeting being of record, no transcript has been released. Instead, we know about what transpired through tweets by various Times reporters–which, shockingly, are spun in an anti-Trump direction. The Associated Press headlines: “Trump again disavows alt-right, white supremacists.” No doubt much else was discussed, but this is what millions of newspaper readers will see: an association »

Desperate Democrats Turn to Death Threats

Featured image Democrats are having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that they lost the presidential election. Now they are threatening to kill Republican electors unless they switch allegiance and vote for Hillary Clinton when the electoral college meets on December 19. The Detroit News reports: Trump’s opponents have deluged [Michael] Banerian and other GOP electors with pleas and nasty emails to reverse course and cast their ballots for »

Imagine

Featured image This report comes to us via Rockslide. We cannot vouch for its accuracy: The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week. The Republican presidential campaign is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution. Canadian border residents say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of »

Liberals Having Second Thoughts?

Featured image Yes, I know, for liberals to have any second thoughts requires that they had some first thoughts. (Rim shot!) There are a few liberal thought leaders, like Mark Lilla and Damon Linker, who are honestly confronting the destructive dead-end of the identity politics that is now the core desideratum of the Democratic Party. But there is a déjà vu all over again quality to some of these ruminations. Take, for »

Are All Liberals Rude and Arrogant?

Featured image Perhaps not, but it often seems that way. Vice President-Elect Mike Pence is in New York, working with Donald Trump on staffing their new administration. He took last night off to see the popular Broadway musical “Hamilton.” When he and his family took their seats, some in the crowd booed–although, to be fair, it sounds to me as though more applauded: The real outrage came at the end. As Pence »

Promises, Promises

Featured image When a Republican wins the presidency, it is always fun to ridicule the celebrities who vowed to leave the country should such a horror take place. To my recollection, not one has ever followed through on such a threat (or promise, depending on how you look at it). This year is no exception. Michael Ramirez captures my sentiments exactly. Click to enlarge: Celebrities may have played a larger than usual »

Love Trumps Hate!

Featured image Liberals see Donald Trump supporters as dark, hateful, potentially dangerous. Yet somehow, the violence–real and symbolic–is all on the other side. This story comes from San Antonio: “2 students, teacher reprimanded for Trump assassination skit.” Two 10th-grade students at a San Antonio high school and their teacher have been reprimanded for the performance of a skit portraying the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump. The San Antonio Express-News reports the skit, »

Drunk Driver Blames…Donald Trump

Featured image The response to Donald Trump’s election by disappointed Democrats has included riots, assaults, play-doh sessions and cry-ins, among other irrational outpourings. Here in Minnesota, one voter responded in a manner that–while we certainly can’t recommend it–made a little more sense: Lino Lakes police: Driver at .33 BAC blames crash on anger over Trump’s victory. A day after Americans voted for president, an extremely drunken motorist rammed into two vehicles stopped »
